Mariners GM Jerry Dipoto is feeling bullish about his team, judging by the medium-interesting trade he made today for reliever David Phelps, which will send four low-ranked prospects to Miami.
Jeffrey Loria, who is extremely rich in part because of his ability to fleece the taxpayers of Miami in ruthless ways, is also a big fan of flip phones.
The Phillies lost to the Marlins last night, with Dee Gordon delivering the winning hit in the 10th inning. But it was Giancarlo Stanton who put on a show earlier in the game, hitting a pair of homers in his first two at-bats.
Here is big dong-crushing superhuman Giancarlo Stanton going up to make a heroic catch against the wall in right center, and, um, keeping the ball in the park?
Giancarlo Stanton took his timeout early on during last night’s Home Run Derby. He got off to a rough start, slapping a handful ground balls and liners rather than monster dingers, and he was clearly frustrated by the time he’d already eaten up.
Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is reportedly suing a Marlins fan for possession of the fan’s commercial building to recoup funds the Marlins say they lost when the fan decided not to continue paying for his season tickets to see his trainwreck of a favorite team.
Billionaire Richard Chaifetz has left Derek Jeter’s group bid for the Miami Marlins, reportedly due to frustration with the fact that Jeter was asking for control of the group while “not investing much money,” per the New York Post.
Beloved geezer Ichiro Suzuki is very nearly a mascot at this stage of his career, appearing in just 62 games so far for the crummy Marlins, and entered today with an abysmal .209/.242/.297 line that does not suggest he is a man who any longer belongs in the majors. But he’s still plugging away, and today he got a very…
Derek Jeter has been trying to buy the Miami Marlins from their gross owner Jeffrey Loria for a few months, but things have not been going well for him lately. His good friend Jeb Bush dropped out of a joint pursuit with Jeets three weeks ago, and he reportedly spoke to MLB officials today and told them that he…
Max Scherzer came very close to throwing a no-hitter while you were eating lunch. And then, with one out in the eighth inning, everything went to shit. It was a quintessential Max Scherzer game until it wasn’t, and it was yet another display of Dusty Baker’s peculiar judgment.
A screaming foul liner off the bat of Paul Goldschmidt was headed straight for Craig Minervini’s, er, “midsection” tonight until the Marlins sideline reporter deflected certain disaster with a well-placed clipboard:
The Miami Marlins employ good baseball men like Ichiro, Giancarlo Stanton, and Marcell Ozuna, yet they’re still a sick sort of joke played on the rest of the major leagues. The fish boys are owned by Jeffrey Loria, a comic book villain sketch of an MLB owner who swindled Miami in the worst stadium deal in baseball…
Folks, our worst fears have seem to have come true: Jeb and Jeets have reportedly gone their separate ways, bringing an end to their joint pursuit of the Miami Marlins.
A late, uninteresting Marlins-Dodgers game got fiery after Ross Stripling threw behind Giancarlo Stanton, got ejected, and sparked a fight that saw former L.A. and current Miami skipper Don Mattingly front and center.
It’s been less than a month since Bloomberg reported that Jeb Bush and Derek Jeter had won the bidding war for the Miami Marlins, and since then their reported grip on the team has only gotten looser.
An enthusiastic Marlins fan behind home plate at Wednesday’s game against the Cardinals did her best to distract St. Louis pitcher Brett Cecil in the sixth with two men on and Christian Yelich batting. Anything to help the home team.
Alex Rodriguez turned down an opportunity to bid against old teammate Derek Jeter for the Miami Marlins, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.
Marlins president David Samson is one of those rich guys who likes to do not-rich-guy things in order to show how cool and down to earth he is. He went on Survivor, and in 2014 he starred in a play put on by a local Miami theater called Not Ready For Primetime. The play was about the early days of SNL, and Samson…
Marcell Ozuna is NOT a fan of the Rays’ 2011 AL Wild Card banner and he will do anything he can to see it die.
